Reviews
"A loving portrait of an island....It's like renting a cottage on Nantucket for the weekend - breezy and sad when you come to the end."--The Boston Globe
"A new Elin Hilderbrand novel has come to signify the start of summer to readers. With the idyllic island setting and her eye for details, her books make you want to plan a trip to Nantucket even before you've turned the last page. Her stories are always chockfull of relatable characters and situations, sprinkled with a little bit of escapist fantasy for good measure. Like a good summer barbeque, there's something for everyone here....So get a nice comfy chair in a shady place and dive in!"--The Book Reporter
"The queen regent of the easy-breezy summer read."-- The New York Post
"Charming, poignant...Hilderbrand's narrative is thoroughly readable, with likable heroes and believably despicable antagonists...an engaging read."-- Publishers Weekly
This is my favorite read of the summer so far."-- Georgea Kovanis, Detroit Free Press
Praise for BEAUTIFUL DAY:

"A perfect summer read."--Ladies Home Journal
"A wedding readers won't be able to resist crashing."--Kirkus Reviews
"Hilderbrand's latest is the perfect beach read....[her] straightforward style pulls the reader into the minds of her characters, and all the secrets and sorrows that create the universal messiness of major family events."--Publishers Weekly
PRAISE FOR SUMMERLAND:

"Summerland is as readable as any beach book, but with a much bigger heart."--Boston Globe
"The Queen of the Summer Novel...Hilderbrand blends real-life issues - depression, teen alcoholism, bullying - with her signature soapy twists and illicit romances."--Joanna Powell, People
"Hilderbrand has once again written an engaging story wonderfully illustrating the often complex lives of young people struggling toward adulthood."--Booklist
"A sensitive glimpse into the lives of damaged people groping their way toward healing."--Kirkus Reviews
